Sleep, the best thing created in my life! It is what allows my pours at night to rejuvenate, to allow all my face lotion’s nutrients to make my face smooth! LOL.
“Sleep is a naturally recurring state of relatively suspended sensory and motor activity, characterized by total or partial unconsciousness and the inactivity of nearly all voluntary muscles. It is distinguished from quiet wakefulness by a decreased ability to react to stimuli, and it is more easily reversible than hibernation or coma. Sleep is a heightened anabolic state, accentuating the growth and rejuvenation of the immune, nervous, skeletal and muscular systems.”
Moreover, it allows for a better tomorrow. And for many, sleep is an inability that requires much work or a distinct process. For some, like me at me at times, sleep is laying on my bed and knocking out. But, unlike my normal self tonight, many people, like me — have a difficulty with sleep. It hard! Wanting to go to sleep and not being able to. Not even Ambien helps some. Which allows me to say that I fully empathize with all that have difficulties sleeping.
I know, Its a fact, that I have my reasons as to why I am not able to fall asleep tonight, that fact being that my pain increased tonight. Nevertheless, I would think that my body would want to sleep. Don’t you think? If sleep is a method to heal and restore, and the body doesn’t sleep while in pain… Does that make sleep a fake “best thing ever created in life?”
My attempts for sleep shall be: (giving you ideas here…*wink*)
I hope, that you sleep well tonight. Whoosa, yoga, listening to my breathing, warm milk, taking a warm shower, snuggling with my piwoo (pillow), praying to the sleep gods for rest, focusing on my pain to help reduce it (some people may cry themselves to sleep (ie.breakup, death, etc) all OK), Ibuprofen! (That will be me for sure…LOL), placing some brown sugar by D’Angelo tunes to sing me to sleep, Ahhh this I like! (I would take out Dicey Street blues or of the list, too up beat and maybe, dare I say, Smooth). Remembering of times and places that allow me comfort and peace.
Everything Happens for a reason. 🙂 I’m writing to you about it, am I not? 😀
Goodnight. Sleep tight. ☺
